Nokia now world’s largest Windows Phone vendor

To no one’s surprise, Nokia, Microsoft’s BFF in smartphones, became the largest vendor of Microsoft smartphones in fourth quarter 2011.

That’s according to a news release from research firm Strategy Analytics, which also says Microsoft smartphone shipments — that would be Windows Phone — numbered 2.7 million that quarter.

“Microsoft smartphone shipments remain tiny, but they are showing tentative signs of growth,” Alex Spektor, associate director at Strategy Analytics, said in the news release, noting that Nokia overtook HTC for the #1 spot. Nokia’s global Microsoft Windows Phone shipments hit 0.9 million units, according to Spektor.

A year ago, Nokia and Microsoft announced they were teaming up for smartphones, with Nokia choosing Windows Phone as the operating system for most of its smartphones. Nokia’s Window Phone offerings thus far — especially the high-end Lumia 900 — have gotten positive reviews.
